RPi 4 uses USB-C for power now, iirc. I believe the RPi Zero's an older model though.

When I ordered the Zero I had no idea how old it was. Looking at the picture it certainly looked like usb c. Likewise I assumed that the hdmi connector was the micro hdmi that's on the pi 4 but when it arrived I was annoyed to discover that it was mini hdmi. I didn't even know that there was a 3rd hdmi type.

For some reason I'm a bit mesmerized by these little computers. I shouldn't be given that my android phone is running linux, although it's buried away and not easily accessible.

The first unix workstation I used was a Sun, with a Motorola 68020. That cpu's physical size was at least as big as the Zero's board. And the Sun had something like 4 meg of ram. But it ran BSD unix just fine. With the generic/vanilla MIT X11.

Android phones run Android which has a custom Linux Kernel. So less similar to Linux as a complete OS with a GUI than Linux is to Mac OS X.

I remember the Solaris printed manuals
